||Calvin Johnson, DET
||Madden cover guy is the game’s best receiver, and it’s not close right now. A healthy ’12 equals 1,500 yards and 12 TD’s, easy.
||A.J. Green, CIN
||Receiver position is deep and crowded this season, but the ceiling for Green is higher than most – his rookie season was a small sign of things to come.
||Andre Johnson, HOU
||Injuries have frustrated fantasy owners over the years, and as hard as it is to believe, Johnson has never posted a 10 TD season.
||Julio Jones, ATL
||Another second-year receiver whose ceiling seems to have no limit. Roddy White’s presence may actually help Jones lead the league in explosive plays.
||Larry Fitzgerald, ARI
||Outside Megatron, Fitz is the best WR in the game – but when your QB options are Kolb and Skelton…hey, he can’t throw and catch.
||Roddy White, ATL
||This may be the season White passes the torch to young Julio, but from a fantasy perspective, he’s still an elite WR1.
||Brandon Marshall, CHI
||The Cutler-Marshall Mile High magic from Denver is already on display in the Windy City. Marshall = new Monster of the Midway.
||Greg Jennings, GB
||Rodgers has weapons on weapons, but Jennings should eat first. August concussion shouldn’t linger into the regular season.
||Mike Wallace, PIT
||Rumblings indicate Wallace should be back with his teammates shortly. With a depleted running game, pass-happy Todd Haley will be calling plenty of plays for #17.
||Hakeem Nicks, NYG
||Eli’s top target should be ready to roll for Week 1. I think we see more Nicks for six than salsa dancing in ’12 – but not by much.
||Jordy Nelson, GB
||15 TD’s last season! But there may be stretches where you wonder “Where’s Jordy?” For that reason, he’s an elite WR2/fringe WR1.
||Victor Cruz, NYG
||Cruz is the real deal and will be a fantasy force this season. But similar to Nelson in GB, you may have to live through a season of ‘boom or bust’ moments.
||Dez Bryant, DAL
||Combination of injuries, off-the-field issues has plagued a WR w/ way too much talent not to be a game-changer. This needs to be the season Dez shows his dominance.
||Percy Harvin, MIN
||A lot of questions on the Viking offense, but one thing is certain: Percy is the #1 option in the passing game…and they’ll be playing from behind quite a bit this season.
||Wes Welker, NE
||How many balls are there to go around in New England? Welker will get his, but it probably won’t be at the clip it was in ’12.
||Brandon Lloyd, NE
||When the Pats went 16-0 in ’07, there was a guy named Randy Moss that took the top off the defense…I’m just saying.
||Damaryius Thomas, DEN
||Peyton plans to lean heavily on Thomas and Eric Decker this season. Will the physically superior Thomas answer the bell?
||Miles Austin, DAL
||If Austin can’t get his hamstrings right, it could be a long season in Big D. Worth a late WR2 flyer, especially w/ Witten’s status in the air.
||Steve Smith, CAR
||Clicked from the beginning w/ Cam last season, but offense still features three capable RB’s, solid TE and emerging young WR.
||Marques Colston, NO
||Colston’s injury history is well documented, but if healthy, he may get a few more balls thrown his way to make up for the loss of Robert Meachem.
||Dwayne Bowe, KC
||Signed and ready to go, but new offense comes w/ questions. Two headed monster at RB (Charles, Hillis) may take top billing.
||Vincent Jackson, TB
||Jackson disappeared at times w/ a more explosive offense in San Diego. Potential to put up fringe WR1 numbers is there, but I wouldn’t target him until 6th, 7th round.
||Stevie Johnson, BUF
||Bills are powered by Fred Jackson, but after getting paid this off-season, Johnson will be counted on to lead the passing game. As for your fantasy team? Perfect WR3.
||DeSean Jackson, PHI
||Doesn’t catch a lot of balls, so it’s hard to rely on consistent production. That said, explosive play ability makes him worth a fantasy roster spot – at the right price, of course.
||Torrey Smith, BAL
||Potential sleeper of ’12. If the Ravens are going to let Flacco fling it this season, Smith is worth a later pick. Could pay-off in a big way for your fantasy squad.
